Miracle Run: Watching My Autistic Sons Grow Up- and Take Their First StepsInto Adulthood by Corrine Morgan-Thomas



A single mother barely making ends meet, Corrine Morgan-Thomas could hardly afford doctors for her twins, Stephen and Phillip. After their diagnosis of autism, no one else thought these boys would ever amount to anything. But Corrine managed single-handedly to keep the boys out of institutions-and in "regular" school. And their inspiring story became Lifetime television's Miracle Run. The real miracle, though, was what happened where the movie left off-when Stephen and Phillip graduated to face adult autism. From their diagnosis to the present day, when the boys have grown into.

As I read Miracle Run I realized this was truly and honestly written from the view point of a mother who traveled a difficult journey not only in her life as the mother of autistic twins but also as a women fighting to find answer's for her son's diagnosis. This is more of a journal of her adult life written from her heart. As I read there were tears of sadness more often tears of joy, also there is laughter she has a witty sense of humor. I found it an amazing journey and highly recommend the book.

I think that this mother and her twin autistic children learned to surprise others with the achievements they achieved and continue to reach without thinking about the limitations of their environment

It's a decent story - the survival of this family alone is impressive.

I would have appreciated it more if the co-author had helped Morgan-Thomas streamline the story a bit. In every paragraph, she goes back and forth between her memoires and her reflections in the same breath. It was kind of like, "I was miserable, but I wasn't; well, I was, but I don't want you to get the wrong idea - because I was grateful, even though I was ungrateful." <------- THIS IS NOT FROM THE BOOK. That was just my interpretation of the tone of the story. If you can get muddle through it, the glimpse into the life of a family who lives with autism is interesting, painful, and somewhat inspirational.

The best thing I have to offer up about this book is this:
You can really feel the love, pride, and connection between a mother and her children. Autistic or otherwise.
